Reviewed 3 September 2013

painings are great and impactful, but explanations are not so, need to go prepared or buy a guidebook.Do not miss the drawings, they tell you much about the creation process

“Interesting”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Really interesting. An artist who I was not familiar with but apparently should be. Would have been really nice to have some more in depth explanations in English. The biography was useful though.
Free entry because it was a public holiday.

“Well Done”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

The life history of this painter is so interesting so be sure to read it before viewing pictures. The paintings are massive and colorful with a variety of subject matter. I was impressed and wanted to know more.

“Impressive work”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Csontvary is the second best painter of our age - according to Dali, who is obviously the number one in his own opinion :). The museum exhibits some of his best works. Impressive paintings, visiting recommended.

“A remarkable painter - must be seen!”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

Csontvary Tivadar is an amazing modernist Hungarian painter, his landscapes reflect an intense psychological preoccupation. He uses rich and almost surrealist colour schemes. Must be seen!
